The risk with the Global Fund’s new TB strategy

Monday, November 4, 2013

The strategy committee has recommended that countries with high TB and HIV co-infection applying for Global Fund support only put forward a single, joint proposal for both diseases. If implemented, a leading expert on the matter told Devex it will be a huge step forward, as it will allow a country to tackle both diseases on the same level, such as by having health information systems, supply chains and service delivery points that cater to both HIV and TB, and can lead to savings.
